you get 60 people to vote for in the u.s. said that? that is the practical challenge we have got. if we could limit greenhouse gases and put in place a mechanism for reducing greenhouse gases in one sector of the economy, that would be major progress in my view. there are other ways to deal with it. there may be ways to provide incentives for the retirement of coal plants which would substantially reduce greenhouse gases or accelerate the reduction of greenhouse gases over the next several years. there is the multi-pollutant legislation as a way to incentivize a modernizing of the power production that goes on in this country and reduce greenhouse gases as part of that. there are a lot of different ways to approach that problem. >> isn't there a bit of a trade- off between the different goals we are trying to achieve? the proponents of the legislation cast it as something that will get us off of foreign oil but that's not the same as climate change. as you scale back, could be about reducing emissions for one particular sector like utilities, argues sacrificing the goal the propo

years. what do you think afghanistan will look like when u.s. troops start to pull out? how much progress will be attained by then? >> there are parts of afghanistan that are secure now, so it's not as though afghanistan is insecure now and will be secure by 2011, july. it will be -- i would say is iraq secure, for instance? we are pulling out totally out of iraq by the end of next year. down to 50,000 by the end of this year, if my recollection is correct. but is iraq secure? there's bombings in iraq almost every day and yet we are leaving and everyone agrees we should leave. are we leaving it secure and reducing forces when it is secure? no. is it for most purposes secure? yes. is it secure enough so it's on the right path to security with some confidence? yes. and that's what i would think afghanistan will look like in july of 2011, that it will be substantially secure. most of it will be secure. and the rest of it will be clearly on a path towards security for its people and on a path where the taliban is clearly not going to be able to reassert control because the afghan tro

great charges -- emotion, fear, guilt, or racism. that is how you pass or kill a bill in the u.s. congress. emotion, fear, guilt, or racism. is that, but that is the way it is. . good people of deep differences knowing the possibility of odds of success are rather harrowing to say the least. but i do have the naive belief and i think erskine has it to stabilize social security and insure its solvesy 75 or more years out. but as we address it, the keening wail of cut goes out through the lavend, or gut. good heavens. it's -- if people can't grasp that disability inshurns will be unsustainable in less than ten years, it's grown double since 1980, i won't go into figures, that just makes people's eyes glaze over. but old age and insurance, will only pay out 75% of its benefits in 3e7. it won't go broke. just going to pay out 75 instead of 100. and that date will keep moving closer with population growth and aging. unsustainable, unconscionable, and predictable. but there are many options out there. over two dozens options out there will work and we'll work on them all. and i think i

up with adam boutlon of sky news to talk about u.s.-british relations. we will see you again tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m. eastern [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2010] . . >> the governor, who is a popular governor, has made it clear he wants to run in a special election if the law changed to allow that. but i think this election year is going to be largely a question of whether voters in the states want to send another vote to rubber stamp the administration's agenda or whether they want checks and balances. so i think it could be a very interesting election. i think we'll have a competitive candidate. >> let me introduce our two reporters. >> thanks for coming. i'm very interested in the role of the tea party. my understanding is that they have energized conservative whose may have sat home in 2006, 2008, weren't too crazy about the way the country is going. they made a big impact this year. i'm interested in the role of the tea party and your role in the committee. there have been several endorsements, i th

? >> what i found most interesting were his expectations for 2011 when u.s. troops are expected to leave. he did not talk about democracy flourishing. he described a good enough situation where the fifth afghanistan government can hang on until they can take control of their country. we are not talking about leaving a country behind that is really in tact, and i think the expectations are so much lower than perhaps 2001 and half 2002 when we started the war, and people thought we were going to bring democracy to afghanistan, and we realize the complexities are so overwhelming, so just -- to juxtapose what we saw, i find that interesting. >> of the domestic front, patience is driven in part by resources on the debate about federal spending, what did you take away from the description of the process of? >> i defer to him. he is an expert in process. it was very clear in this town that it has been opened up for military and the pentagon since 2001, and it is unsustainable. the commission is going to issue its report in september. it is going to have hard choices to make. i think it is clear tha
